My son is 10 months old and he has been getting a cold every month since november - so this is the fourth time he is getting it. He hasn't even been going to a day care. He is at home most of the time, and everytime we seem to start going out, either for shopping or for dinner (this time around I think it was coz a kid with cold came into the house and played with his toys), he seems to catch a cold. His doctor says he has dust allergy or something (also southern california is known for allergens). My parents tell me that if a baby is catching cold so many times, it is an indication of deficiency and that I should give him some juice with vitamin C + the poly-visol (multivitamin drops that he hates) everyday to have him develop resistance. Is this true? Are such frequent colds (which I try so hard to prevent) an indication of a deficiency? Please help. His main diet is breastmilk, with 2tbsp cereal dinner + 1/2tbsp veggies (mostly sweet potatoes/squash/(carrots/peas mixed with sweet potatoes)) during lunch.
Thanks in advance.
